big purr.

Animals love. Yes, they do.



I won't admit how many times I've watched this video, but it always makes me cry and search for a warm furry body to hug, a little whiskery face to smooch. Lucky I have so many choices.

That's a powerful video.

Whenever my spurious gland quivers a bit I check in with Mother Snopes. Much to my delight, this is a TRUE story. (I'm sure Breda already vetted it, but, well-- you know.)

Here are some more interesting details about the story for those that care.

SUCH a lovely story.

We are so blessed with immeasureable riches in the form of the furry critters in our lives, large and small. I could weep daily for the joy I have in my little puppy.

Yep. This and many other things I've seen like it are why I choose not to hunt any more.

As far as I am concerned humans have no right to take the life of any other sentient being.

I also believe that the "Anthropomorphic Fallacy" is just a lie that scientists made up as an excuse to use animals for their experiments.

I pass judgment on no one that hunts but I choose not to any more and haven't for many years.

The only thing I kill is what is trying to kill me or mine first.
